My old blackberry is broken beyond repair, and its sd card is encrypted. Is there any way I can access its content on my new blackberry or via PC?
Thank you in advance.

yes, but depending on the encryption key used.
If Device password is used to encrypt files, you can decrypt the files using the same password.
If device key or device password&device key is used, you can't, meaning the files are now useless.

BBs are the most secure mobile devices available, and media card encryption is part of that strong security. To date, there is no way to break through it (which is considered a feature, not a failing -- albeit inconvenient in your particular circumstances).

I agree with @sdgardne .
Having decrypted/unencrypted backup files is still the best practice to do because only a blackberry smartphone can decrypt files ecnrypted by a blackberry smartphone (unles there is a software that does that). Smartphones are extremely vulnerable when stolen or lost. Believe me this happened to me on one of my SD cards, I didn't have backup so my personl files are now long gone, but I can breathe freely knowing each and every pictures, docs, videos etc. on the SD card are encrypted.
